I was there on Jan 14. Restaurant on the second floor of a commercial building on Ste-Catherine St. I had the exact address and even then, I walked by without seeing it. Inside, it ooks like the pictures on their website: high ceilings, low light room, quiet ambiance. Rather more fusion Japanese than traditional cuisine. Quite good. Interesting sake list.... More

Wonderful atmosphere in an unusual location - 2nd floor of an office building. It's an oasis of calm and perfect for lunch, which I enjoyed immensely. The bento box was delicious.

Always good food with nice wait staff. I usually go at lunch time and they know what we order and we get good efficient service. It is on the second floor so you must know to go there. There is a sign on the door to the office building which is on St. Catherine's east of Union Street.

Zenya restaurant, located on the second floor of a building off St. Catherines, in my opinion has always served good food of home cooked quality. I am a regular and my dishes are usually remembered, as are the familiar faces of the staff. The sushi is made fresh and is on par with anything else I've had. I usually opt... More

Went on a Sunday night with my wife, place was pretty quiet so we had a great service. We decided to take the Omakase and are very glad we did. Food was exquisite and kept us wanting more! Only downside I found is that they served the white wine way too cold, we took it out of the bucket to... More

My wife and I had dinner there. The sashimi specials were really good. The fish was fresh and tasted fantastic. The staff was polite and attentive. There are plenty of tables and chairs at the bar. Location. The restaurant is located between the Best Buy and the Dollar store on St. Katherine in an office entrance on the second floor... More

I have been here a few times with my husband. We always get the omakase (tasting menu) and it is a lot of fun. I love receiving inventive and adventurous dishes that I would never otherwise have tried. I would recommend for people who are open to new things and like being surprised. Some highlights were the sashimi in ponzu... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
